Yes; it's an amazing duet.  Those two also have a lot of ahem, chemistry, if you watch the video. :o

A cover of Ryan Adams.  Great song, both the original and the cover.  If any of you haven't heard it, Ryan Adams' "Gold" was/is a fantastic album.

Yes, it's a great song.

By the way, The Corrs (who are siblings) are really big in Ireland and they are famous throughout the UK and some other European countries as well. They have made several pleasant albums (it's soft pop mixed with traditional Irish folk music).

Their most famous single is possibly "Runaway" :

I think (but I'm not sure) that Bono and his friend Gavin Friday were producers on one of the Corrs album (or was it on Andrea Corrs' solo album?).

Excellent song, one of the first songs that really peaked my interested in Bono/U2

A great karaoke song when you’re out with a fellow u2 fan and are sufficiently inebriated.  This duet version was available where we were (metro St Louis) so I assume it’s readily available elsewhere.
